National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) has

an active interest in the support of research projects addressing

epidemiologic, etiologic, and pathogenetic patterns and trends in HIV

infection and AIDS in various population groups.  Studies are

currently supported that focus on minorities, children, mothers and

infants, women, and men.  One group of these studies is the

Multicenter AIDS Cohort Study (MACS), which was initiated in 1983 and

is currently supported through cooperative agreements.  Because the

current awardees have unique access to the study cohorts, study data,

and study specimens and have unique expertise with respect the

integration of these elements, the NIAID intends to invite

applications for competitive renewal of these studies through a

competition limited to the current awardess only.  One component of

the current cooperative agreements (basic research using specimens

from study cohorts) will not be included in any resultant awards;

such studies will only be supported through open competitions.

Although competition for this cooperative agreement study extension

is limited, NIAID wishes to call attention to its ongoing interest in

applications for prospective studies related to the etiology,

pathogenesis, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of HIV infection

and its sequellae.
